I mean yes there are some amazing artists out there. But sometimes EQD posts some low quality art. Now if the artist is new then hey I can’t really say shit about them. We all start new. But sometimes there’s just random low quality art or stuff that is clearly saucy and not hidden. It just feels lazy. Especially considering sometimes in Drawfriends there’s repeats of certain artwork in the list.

Oh god yes, as an artist and friends of artists who get ignored by the EQD overlords I can atest that this is right in many levels. So much mediocre art gets published while so much actually good art gets ignored it’s kinda sad…
I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s AWESOME that those little artists get their moment to shine! Buuuuut if you’re going to have rules, uphold them.
For once, “NO OCs” ok this is bullshit, there’s OCs all the time, so what determines the exception for this, how pretty they are? Well it might make people believe that their extremely thought and worked OC isn’t good enough due to your lack of enforcement of your own rules. No OCs? That’s cool with me, but NO OCs MEANS NO OCs goddamnit.
And then we have the whole “it’s in the queue” bs they give you if you submit anything. And then it never gets published and you are there left wondering what was wrong with your piece when you see some lazy ass stuff being published like hotcakes.
Again, nothing wrong with publishing mediocre art, people enjoy a lot of things, and it gives a boost to the artist. But don’t ignore people who actually submit their own things just because you can’t fit them, or you think it ain’t good enough.
^ exactly my thoughts too.
Another little pet peeve of mine about EQD, although it’s more to do with the commenters, is that when my art gets featured in a drawfriend, these people in the comments LIST every single artwork but SKIP mine.
I’m also kinda pissed off they didn’t feature our Alicorn Mafia table in the BUCK post but oh well.
